Happy Monday!

I’m joining my blogging friends for some flower therapy and

Monday Morning Blooms on a cold, winter day!

We had a wintery mix of snow and sleet, along with blustery winds yesterday.

We’re thankful it wasn’t more of an ‘ice event’ as predicted that would have caused

downed trees and power lines.

this morning from my Monday Morning Blooms’ friends!

Join me at the table for a little winter nesting. . .

The table is set for cozy dining by our Winter Nesting Tree,

decorated to extend the *twinkle* season beyond Christmas.

It makes the house cheerier and brighter and is a good antidote

for the winter blues when it’s cold and gray outside!

    Mary, I must say that I am so happy you created your “Winter Nesting Tree” again this year!…I so look forward to seeing that beauty during the winter months. Such an enchanting backdrop to your beautiful winter tablescapes. Adore the Wedgwood Maltese Blue pitcher and you found one of my favorite flowers, the bellflower! As always, the layering of the table is perfection…love that you used a fur throw for your table covering…giving such a warm and cozy feel…So sad that our Pier 1 closed…they had such great things such as your fabulous twig silverware!….I hope that you faired well with the storm….Knock of wood, our power is still on…just a couple of inches of snow and lots of ice here….Enjoy the remainder of your holiday weekend….So great to be blooming with you today!!

    • January 18, 2022 at 6:57 am

      Thank you Shirley! It’s always a joy to share blooms with you. ♥

  2. January 17, 2022 at 7:21 am

    Good morning, Mary. I am so glad you didn’t get more of an ice event. We only had a very cold rain. I never remember seeing the Wedgwood pitcher, it is beautiful. The mix of white grocery store blooms is perfect. I also love bellflowers, but rarely see them in my grocery stores. The cozy throw provides a lovely foundation for your winter nesting table set against the backdrop of your beautiful nesting tree. The twinkling tree is definitely a good antidote to chase away the January blues.

    It is always a pleasure to share Monday Morning Blooms with you. Wishing you a warm and cozy day inside by the twinkle of the tree!

      Thank you Pam! I so look forward to our blooming Mondays. :) ♥

    Your settings are Beautiful as always. The snow was pretty yesterday but I prefer it on tables and in trees inside. 🤣 I have been wanting new dishes for a long time but can never decide…too many choices but the Devon Cottage are wonderful ( plus my middle daughter is Devon!). Thanks for the beauty on this cold day. Peace.

    • January 18, 2022 at 7:02 am

      Thank you Cindi! I hear you on ‘prefer it on tables and trees inside’! It’s beautiful coming down but a mess to go out in. I think you’d enjoy a set of your daughter’s namesake dishes. :) ♥

    Mary, you sure make snow and winter look appealing with your touches! I much prefer the fantasy over the reality of what’s outside my door this morning!! The blue & white is perfect any month, but especially in January, I think. I love your bird on nest with the Epsom salt snow. Thise little bird dishes are the perfect choice for this MMB, and so is that furry throw. Thanks for warming up this blustery morning for me!

    • January 18, 2022 at 7:07 am

      Thank you Rita! The reality was treacherous this morning in it’s frozen state when I went to take the dogs out. Stay safe. ♥

    So much beauty in today’s post Mary from your arrangement, table with pretty plates and beautifully decorated tree. I can only imagine how wonderful it must be to enjoy the twinkling lights and sparkling ornaments while you tucked away warm and cozy with snow outside. We missed the snow yesterday and just got cold rain. Thank you and the other ladies for the flower therapy this morning! 💙

      Thank you for your visit and sweet comment Elaine! Stay warm ♥

    The blue and white arrangements from each of you are exquisite. They brought inspiration and “sunshine” on this very cold, blustery morning.

    • January 18, 2022 at 7:10 am

      Glad they brought you sunshine Ann and I hope you’re warming up today! I heard back from Erika and she is mailing your calendar this week. ♥

    Thank you for a beautiful start to my day and antidote for the January Blues Mary! I’ve long admired those sweet bird dishes and was lucky to find a matching teapot at TJ Maxx, so I always keep my eyes out for them at HomeGoods and TJ Maxx when shopping. Your arrangement is gorgeous in your transferware pitcher. Jerrie

    • January 18, 2022 at 7:12 am

      Thank you for your visit Jerrie! I still see those Grace’s Teaware bird dishes at HomeGoods and TJ Maxx on occasion, so keep checking back. :)

    Brrrrr…it’s cold outside but warm and cozy by your winter nesting tree and table! I love your winter tree so much that I promised myself I would do this next year and start my shopping for bird and other winter ornaments as soon as they arrive at Hobby Lobby this fall. Thank you for the beauty and inspiration this morning Mary!

    • January 18, 2022 at 7:14 am

      Hi Teresa, It’s frigid here too but we’re on a warming trend this week! Hobby Lobby sells out of their ornaments quickly so shopping for them in the fall is smart! Stay warm ♥

  10. January 17, 2022 at 9:37 am

    I’m so glad you aren’t iced in Mary! I love the cardinal capture in the snowy branches, beautiful! The white flower mix in your blue and white pitcher is lovely, and I would happily spend the month of January enjoying your wonderful Winter Nesting Tree. The furry table cover, twig flatware and bird bowls are nice and cozy and the candles add warmth and sparkle to your winter table. I hope you can stay warm and snug this week!

      Oh—how lovely. The table setting is so – so pretty. How gifted you are😊 Thank you for brightening my day❤️

    • January 18, 2022 at 7:17 am

      Thanks so much Sheran! We’ve had lots of bird activity and Cardinals at our feeders the past several days. ♥

      • January 18, 2022 at 7:18 am

        Thank you for your sweet comment Gert! I hope you’re staying warm in your neck of the woods. :) ♥

    Mary, Your arrangement is beautiful but the shot of the cardinal in the snow is gorgeous! I love cardinals! Your arrangement with the added white branches, pine cones and cute bird really enhances the beauty of the flowers. January is a challenging dreary month, but the colorful tree and pretty arrangement really lightens the mood. I always look forward to MMB and always enjoy it. Have a great week! Clara ❤️

    • January 18, 2022 at 7:20 am

      Thank you for your visits and kind comments Clara! I hope you fared well in this latest winter blast. ♥

  14. January 17, 2022 at 11:18 am

    Gorgeous! Love the photo with the cardinal. You should enter it in a phot contest. Would make a beautiful Christmas card. Look forward to your posts every week.

    • January 18, 2022 at 7:21 am

      Thank you so much for your sweet comment Andree! The Cardinals have been busy refueling at our feeders in the cold weather. :)

    Mary, I love the beauty of the snow but was so relieved that our power stayed on. The bird activity from dawn till dusk was amazing. My husband counted 30 cardinals at our feeders during the storm, plus all kinds of other birds including a large hawk on our gazebo hoping for a meal. Fortunately for our little birds he flew away hungry this time. You reminded me I have a pretty dark blue pitcher with snowflakes on it that would be a great container for some white altromeria if I can,get out today and go to the grocery store. Everything seems to be melting quickly. That’s how we like our snow storms in N.C.!!!!

    • January 18, 2022 at 7:27 am

      Good Morning Kathy! We were fortunate not to lose power too. The bird feeder activity has been fun to watch hasn’t it? It’s a challenge to keep them refilled with the rising price and scarcity of sunflower seed. We got about 4 inches of snow and a layer of sleet so we need another day of sunshine and warmer temps to melt it away. Stay warm. ♥

  17. January 17, 2022 at 1:00 pm

    I’m glad you dodged the ice storm. They are the worst! Your post is as lovely and heartwarming as ever. I so love your winter nesting tree. I say I am going to add one here, but never do. Your table is inviting, and the white bouquet in your blue and white is the perfect touch. Enjoy your warm and cozy home.

  18. January 17, 2022 at 1:02 pm

    Mary, I’ve switched to Chrome and it allows me to post comments now, but I still can’t leave a comment on your blog for some reason. Are they going to your spam folder? I want to get this figured out!!!

    • January 17, 2022 at 1:12 pm

      Happy Monday Sarah! I’ve read that Chrome is better suited for WP blog viewing, which is the browser I use. Both of your comments posted, sometimes there is a delay for some reason that I haven’t quite figured out. :) Thank you for your persistence. ♥

      Thanks so much Liz! I hope you’re staying warm and cozy! ♥

  22. January 17, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    Oooh Mary, what a gorgeous setting to take away the winter blues!!! I’m crazy about your arrangement in that pretty pitcher. Those Johnson Bros plates, oh my are they ever beautiful 💙💙I’m going to look that pattern up. Thank you for sharing the beauty of your home with us. I’d be happy to join you at your table.

    • January 18, 2022 at 7:35 am

      Thank you Kitty! I’m surprised you don’t have that pattern in your pretty teacup collection. :) Stay warm ♥

    Mary how you blow my mind! Thanks for letting us be a part of yours! Lol. What a gorgeous tablescape! I love how it is mostly white with touches of blues. I love the birds, the nests (and the clever use of epsom salts as snow), the pitcher of beautiful flowers, the dishes and silver ware…..all of it! You sure know how to take the blues away for us! Do you remember where you got the yellow and white bird with the pearls (or bubbles) on top? I just love it! Thank you again for another dazzling lovely display!

    • January 17, 2022 at 7:22 pm

      Thank you Linda for your sweet comment! I found that particular bird ornament at a local store a couple of years ago. They always have a wonderful display of themed Christmas trees and ornaments. :)

    • January 18, 2022 at 7:36 am

      Thank you Debbie! Blue and white is a classic color combination that’s pretty any time of year! ♥

  25. January 17, 2022 at 9:12 pm

    Glad you are cozy and safe, I know you we’re worried about ice! Our last storm left people without power for over 2 weeks in the snow with downed trees and power lines. Your table looks wonderful, let it snow, you have all you could wish for!.

    • January 18, 2022 at 7:46 am

      Thank you! Yes, we fortunate it was more snow than ice as predicted! I can’t imagine not having power for that length of time if you rely on electric heat like we do!

    Oh Mary, this is all so absolutely beautiful and brings a smile to my face on this cold winter’s day. Your entire tablesetting with the pretty floral arrangement and china is so pretty. You have thought of every perfect detail. The winter nesting tree is just stunning! How I would love to sit at this lovely table and enjoy a visit. Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!

    • January 18, 2022 at 7:49 am

    So pretty and how nice to dine by your beautiful winter tree. Makes everything cozy and snug. I still love those bird dishes by Gracie china and I keep my eye out for them when I go to our TJ Maxx store where I purchased the Grace (bird) teapot and creamer years ago after seing yours. Our Home Goods store is an hour away. I am also on the lookout for the sugar pot. Maybe I should look at the Replacement china store to see if they carry these items! ( lightbulb moment! Lol)

    • January 18, 2022 at 7:58 am

      Thank you Cyndi! I still see them from time to time at TJ Maxx and HomeGoods. The is one on eBay now, but the shipping is as much as the bowl. If I run across a sugar bowl in my outings, I’ll let you know. :)
